Prof. Haiping Xia

Prof. Xia started to work at Southern University of Science and Technology in 2018 as Chair Professor. And acting as Executive Dean of Grubbs Research Institute in Shenzhen in 2019. His research focuses on the synthesis, reactivity, and applications of organometallic conjugated system in the field of Materials Chemistry and Organometallic Chemistry. His most important academic contribution is the creation of Carbolong Chemistry, which is the work of Chinese people from 0 to 1.

The definition of Carbolong Chemistry: Chemistry in which a planar conjugated carbon chain (carbon number not less than 7) chelates a transition metal by at least three carbon metal σ bonds. Dragon is the spiritual link of Chinese all over the world. Long is the Chinese Pinyin of dragon. Carbolong Chemistry has set and maintained two world records: 1. The record of Carbay carbon bond angle (< 130 °) has greatly refreshed 17 °; 2. There are five carbon metal bonds on the equatorial plane of metal. Hoffmann, the 1981 Nobel laureate, spoke highly of the work and authorized his comments to be made public.
